When you see some1 pick their nose at a traffic light, I encourage you to engage them

Thats right. Yesterday I was driving somewhere and I got to a light. I noticed a young man in a car beside me with a cell phone in one hand, not talking, but pushing the buttons with his thumb. His other hand was vigorously sending a finger into each nostril and digging as hard as he could. It was as though nobody was anywhere near him.

So he dug stuff out of both nostrils and was in the stage where he was balling it up. After a minute of watching this I honked my horn. He looked over at me and I gestured for him to eat it. I rolled my fingers together and then stuck my index finger in my mouth, to imitate eating a booger.

Once he realized what I was trying to say to him, along with the fact that he knew he was busted, he created a look on his face that I would say was a mixture of disgust, humiliation, and embarassment. I kind of felt sorry for the guy, as he was in his own little world, but I'm all for a campaign that lets the nose-pickers of the world in on a little secret, that being that we can see what they are doing when stopped at a traffic light.

They should do something like this on an episode of Seinfeld.

Was something like that part of a storyline on Seinfeld? Cool. I quit watching Seinfeld about the time J. Peterman arrived.

You know what I do when I see someone do that? Nothing because I don't give a shit. I have more important things to do like play with the radio and think of smart ass reply's to threads on DVDTALK.

AWESOME!

I can't remember which volume it's on, but there's a bit on one of the CKY movies where they're videotaping this random dude scratching his brain for a few minutes on and airplane. Can't remember if he ingested or not.

I can see the thread now where ukywyldcat is asking whether he was in the right for punching a guy in the face after the guy wiped snot on his car for mocking him.

Are boogers a diabetic-safe food?

Who cares if he's picking his nose in his car? I don't get mad at ugly people when I see their faces in public.

I don't get it...the OP wants to get married to the guy who he saw picking his nose at a traffic light? Hey, get engaged, elope, do whatever you want, boss. Your world, your rules.

I picked my nose at about three red lights in the middle lane yesterday in Hollywood. As I was doing it, I was aware of being visible on both sides, that anyone who cared to look in my direction would see me straining for a stubborn piece of snot---a nasty one wrapped around a nosehair so I practically had to pluck the thing out---and I thought to myself, "You know what, anyone looking at me got a problem with this, they can just go screw themselves."

If they had done what you did, I'd probably lean out the driver's side window to give them a better view.

One time a booger was picking on me.

It didn't make feel all that good.

I'll know better than to pick on a booger the next time I feel
so inclined.

I pick my nose all the time. I don't care if someone sees me. Observation only dictates where I flick the booger afterwards. If someone's watching, I'll toss it in the trash. Otherwise, it's in the general direction of a coworker's empty chair.
